So it’s come to this then…

Ok before I say anything I want to make it clear that I didnt want it to come to this. This site has, for 4 years now, stood by itself under its own weight without much problem. I was ALWAYS against the idea of asking the users for money but sadly its just what needs to happen now.

You will notice a widget on the side bar. Basically what we are asking of the community is to help pay for 3 months of hosting (3 months would actually be around $2800 but I rounded it up). The current advertising money will go towards getting the necessary hardware upgrades we need to keep the site running smoothly. What will happen once those 3 months are up? Well, I am going to try to find a way to make the site sustainable financially again. 3 months is plenty time to figure this stuff out and i’m confident that I will never have to make another donation drive like this again.

So if you can spare a buck or two here or there then we would greatly appreciate it.. anything at all will help. Im not expecting to reach our goal but if we can even make half of that I will be very impressed and forever in-debt to the user-base.

Thank you.

    I’m glad you decided to accept donations. I’ll be chipping in $10 or so to help keep this site alive. This is my go-to site for porn and childhood-mongling and I really don’t want to see it go.

    I still wouldn’t say no to a store though; it’d be cool having a Paheal shirt.

    I’m giving 10$ to a porn site. I can’t believe it.

    But weird as it sounds, this is internet culture worth preserving.
    The good old’ days of the internet are over and we can only fight that with money and effort.

    A store sounds interesting.

    I’ll chip in some in donations when I get paid though. =)

    I would donate if I could, but i dont even have a credit card to open up a paypal account, I really love Paheal and wouldnt want the site to go into the bin.

  9. Danielakiiki said,

    May 24, 2011 @ 3:23 pm

    I’ll donate before the 6/30 deadline. The next 2-3 weeks will determine how much though (waiting on hearing back from a good job I interviewed for). If I get it my donation amount WILL go up.

  10. 3pac said,

    May 24, 2011 @ 3:25 pm

    I would donate if it weren’t for the fact that 90% of Paheal seems to hate me

  11. AnOniMouse said,

    May 24, 2011 @ 4:46 pm

    Pfft 3pac, I love you, da worry.
    And he can hae mah cash as soon as I fix me paypal. Card expired and I didn’t update it with the new one yet. Hmm…20/2800…well if I can contribute alone 0.7% then thats…141 people breaches the total. WE NEED 140 PEEPS TO GIVE $20!

    That will be all.

  12. AnOniMouse said,

    May 24, 2011 @ 4:51 pm

    Easy. Had a look at the site traffic, more than 2 THOUSAND thats a factor of TEN bigger than 140 x 20. Mind, that does include the *shudder* Anon.

    Holy balls! You actually are accepting donations? And the users are being very generous! Thank you all.

  14. Danielakiiki said,

    May 24, 2011 @ 4:59 pm

    Draken, you don’t need a CC to use paypal. The quickest way to add money to a paypal account is through a Moneypak card which can only be bought using cash.'s%20moneypak_e_s

    I love you, 3pac. Your shit is hilarious. I actually learned about you through Paheal and started watching you elsewhere because of it. Don’t let hateful anons get you down.

  17. AnnOnomous said,

    May 24, 2011 @ 6:55 pm

    When you get donations back up, I’ll be donating.

    I also have a suggestion on helping the site run.

    You could set up a site for artists to take commission orders from and take % of the total cost. You could have a default % and then the artist could decide how much of their sale they want to go to Paheal, and the % is displayed along with other information so people can make a decision along with other factors.

    Gonna send some money as soon as soon as the paypal’s working again.

    Keep us informed Wiiaboo, here’s hoping Paypal doesn’t try and do a 502 BADGATEWAY on our efforts.

  21. GirlaPH said,

    May 24, 2011 @ 8:19 pm

    You might as well create the non-adult website just to donate your website, so it’ll won’t automatically closed on you. Good luck guys!

  23. Sntl_Cmdr said,

    May 25, 2011 @ 1:47 am

    @AnnOnomous: Wow, that’s actually a pretty brilliant idea. If we could get enough artists in on it, that could really work out well.

    Just sent this awesome and childhoodkilling site 50 bucks.

    You guys can thank the Euro to Dollar conversion rates for this. Sometimes it’s good to be European.

    I heard the site was in trouble so I came over and saw this and a little tear rolled down my cheek.

    Paheal was the place that took my childhood from me; I won’t allow it to die. Will donate soon~

    $2100 for 87 contributors.
    That’s an average of a little over 21 dollars per donation, when evenly distributed.
    I put up some myself. Badass work guys.

    Sorry to hear about the fuckup with Paypal Wiiaboo. !) are there other money transfer options available? and 2) and if so can we use the cosplay board as the board to ‘save’? It’s SFW and should pass any sniff test. Shit, and I hadn’t had the opprotunity to donate yet :(

  34. Danielakiiki said,

    If not Paypal, would this site work for donations?

  36. James said,

    The PalComix guys moved to AlertPay after Paypal screwed them over a week or 2 ago, maybe give that a look!

    What’s the news on this? I know they permanently shut down your account, but the next step? 😐

    Also, thanks fellow Anons. Hopefully it’s actually feasible in practice.

  40. Nick said,

    June 21, 2011 @ 5:43 am

    What happened to the J-list ad? Did they drop you too for the same reason as some of the other ads? I hope you stay up! PLEASE STAY UP!!!!

  41. Nick said,

  42. Omicron Nexus said,

    July 2, 2011 @ 10:54 pm

    Are you down due to a technical issue, Or is the site dead. In any case. I hope you will be back. I will give cash, My blood, Sperm. Anything.

  46. Gomenasai said,

    July 5, 2011 @ 10:35 am

    I thought the ads for that J-List site were supposed to help with hosting fees for the time being. Hope you won’t close down the site like this, if there are serious problems please let us know.

  47. AnonOVER9000 said,

    July 5, 2011 @ 11:39 am

    I keep getting an 503 error from time to time, which would normally mean it’s only a temporary issue, but as the site is down for days already, I fear the worst…
    It’s really annoying that a page which gets thousands of dollars support has to shut down just because of its content. I can’t remember this happened before…

    But please give us an update, even if only a few people are still reading this blog.

    hey glad to hear the site is only down temporarily, i really wish i could make a donation but unfortunatly my expendable income atm is at less than zero :-( please dont leave us paheal also i think the idea of a store is a good plan to aid us all through this unfortunate time hope to see the site up and running soon

  51. Maruki Konkuro said,

    I would definitely donate if I had the money. If only I could transfer twenty real dollars into PayPal and donate.

    Let’s hope this all works out for the better. I would die without this website.

    July 6, 2011 @ 1:01 am


    man i got here too late to warn you;
    i was going to warn you about being really careful going through paypal. other big hentai sites have been screwed by them more than once due to their content when doing donation drives for the same reasons. the suggestion by “GirlaPH” of making a separate site to send the donations through might be an excellent lupehool to that issue of you can set it up right.

    also, make sure the billing name is something discrete, so no potential donators won’t be hesitant to give due to what name appears on their CC bills. that’s important!

    i was going to suggest you pull collected money out asap before they can close it off, but again too late. so what happens to all that money then? is it automatically refunded to the contributors?, or just never actually taken? in either case, if you can set up another donation location, everyone can just recontribute, unless their money’s locked in that closed account, then that would be total bull.

  54. Htoonlover said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 1:10 am

    i don’t see a donation link anywhere, at the moment, so i guess it’s still not worked out. i want to donate ~$20, but i probably wont be for a couple weeks still. so hopefully you’ll still be excepting them.

    Regardless, if we can whether THIS storm, the idea of a one time donation drive, out of necessity for an overhaul, and smooth sailing from then on sounds really amazing! if that’s true it would be money well spent.

    i’m all down with a couple non-intrusive banners if it helps the site, and
    a store?, if enough people are behind it then hell-yeah, you can print of shirts and all kinds of merch for bulk loads cheap, then sell them at a reasonable price for a tidy worthy-cause purpose.

    though i understand peoples concerns with loli/shota content, you got to keep it for as long as possibly, simply due to preservation of endangered internet freedoms. hopefully anons will win that fight eventually, but i think the internet battle will be along one before it becomes free again.

    there’s got to be some cheap international hosting available. perhaps .me like moved to or .hk even, since hongkong seems to be the polar opposite of all exceptions to china rule(though i don’t know if i would trust a .hk, as china hackers are getting better and r34 already had one attack from china before)…

    i call bullshit

    Reply from Titanium: I call ignorance. This isn’t your geocities page. We take up massive amounts of bandwidth and, moreover, processor time. The latter is why Dreamhost shut us down twice. At any given time we have 2000 visitors on our site.
